Review:

"Candelaria's first book of criticism is a welcome addition to a field that has previously been limited to two other books, Bruce Novoa's Chicano Poetry: A Response to Chaos and Marta Sanchez's Contemporary Chicano Poetry: A Critical Approach to an Emerging Literature. Although selected poems of Lorna Dee Cervantes, Alberto Rios, Gary Soto, Bernice Zamora, and others are discussed, the book focuses on the familiar poets of the early period of the Chicano literary movement of the 60s, Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzalez, Abelardo Delgado, Ricardo Sanchez, Alurista, and Raul Salinas. For the novice, the book provides a selected bibliography and a brief, four-page index of names and subjects ... as a research tool this book meets the needs of faculty and graduate students as well as those of undergraduates and the general reader concerned with American poetry."-Choice

"Poet and university professor Candelaria locates Chicano poetry written since the 1960s in its social, economic, and political setting, uncovers its roots in both the Hispanic and Anglo literary traditions, and joins it to the web of world literature.... Candelaria explores the themes and techniques of such poets as Alurista, Bernice Zamora, and Gary Soto. Her analyses brilliantly combine text and context. The final chapter is a tour de force on the prophetic, self-asserting, pain-centered, place-conscious, affirmative dimensions of Chicano poetry. Erudite, bold, and graceful, this study makes a neglected body of important poetry luminous for novice as well as scholar. It also makes clear that the traditional literary canon needs widening. It is as refreshing as rainfall in the desert."-Library Journal
